The group chooses a nontrivial approach to develop novel ultrashort pulse lasers systems in simple configurations with tailored and outstanding spectral and temporal properties by shaping the generation via internal nonlinear and dispersive phenomena and exploring all avenues of available optical fibre materials and geometries. Innovative laser sources will enable investigation of the fundamental physics of nonlinear phenomena and frequency conversion to mid-infrared, therefore matching fundamental vibration bands of target molecules.
